Join us for a spring mystery knitalong with designer Sivia Harding! We will gather our supplies this week while Sivia is in town teaching five different workshops and cast on with her next Friday, April 15th when the first clue is revealed!
What You’ll Learn
Slipped stitch colorwork, short row shaping, lace and beads!
Adventurous beginner/intermediate: Experience with lace and reading charts is recommended.
Worried about your skills? You might want to take one of Sivia’s workshops this weekend! She recommends the Diamond Fantasy Shawl class as the absolute best preparation although any of her five workshops will prepare you quite a bit for the project.
How it Works
Sign up by purchasing the pattern on Ravelry.
When you sign up you will be sent a pdf with a full detailed materials list, yarn info, and gauge to be ready to cast on. On each release date a pdf update will be sent to you containing the next section and chart. Sivia will be hosting the KAL on her Ravelry forum.

Gauge: 27 sts, 34 rows = 4″ / 10 cm over stockinette stitch, unblocked

Cashmere, 10% Nylon, 400 yds/100 g) or Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn (90% Superwash Merino, 10%
